    Description

    Hank Porter - World War II Insignia Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Cats, along with tigers and lions, were the largest generic animal group used (after birds) for non-Disney Character World War II insignia designs. This is an original World War II Torpedo Squadron insignia from the hand of Hank Porter (1900 - 1951). It's similar to a design used with Donald Duck for the VT8 Navy Group. This one has a cat riding the torpedo in the sky with fighter wings firing away. Nice image size of 8", in graphite with red highlights on trimmed vellum-type onionskin paper. Amazing detail! Fine condition.
